Leeds United line up move for Coventry starlet McCallum – buy and loan back deal considered

According to a report from Coventry Live, Leeds United are considering a move for Coventry City’s young defender Sam McCallum, with a deal which would see the left-back loaned back to the Sky Blues said to be being weighed up.

Since making his breakthrough into the Coventry City senior side, left-back Sam McCallum has been at the centre of continued transfer speculation. In the summer transfer window, a report from Football Insider said that a host of Premier League and Championship sides were interested in McCallum, but a move away failed to materialise.

And now, with the transfer window underway, a report from Coventry Live has claimed that the previously linked Leeds United are weighing up a move for the prospect. The Whites are said to have been a “constant admirer” of McCallum over the course of the past 18 months and a move is being considered this January.

Despite the claims of interest, Sky Blues CEO Dave Boddy insisted that the club are yet to receive any enquiries or approaches for any of their players. He labelled the reports of interest as “January speculation”, saying:

“January speculation. We have had no interest or inquiries from anybody about anybody.”

McCallum, 19, has become a consistent starter in Mark Robins’ side, playing 22 times in all competitions this season, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the process. In total, the youngster has made a total of 30 appearances since making his debut in November 2018.

McCallum is not the only player at Coventry City to have been linked with a move away from the club. A report from TEAMtalk earlier this week claimed that a host of Championship sides were interested in midfielder Zain Westbrooke.
